I went to Allegheny College
Man, this is so cool. I've been into the dead for ~6 years. I actually got into them right after graduating college in 2013. Allegheny College, that is. Years later, on this day in 2019, I've just stumbled upon this show from them, playing in the very gym I used to play basketball in. I wasn't into the dead in college, so I never got to peep around, but I'm curious if there are any remnants (photographs, stories from faculty) of the show in 1971. Great quality recording too. Thanks so much for your stories too - imagining them happening on campus is cracking me up. Solid show too.

The Flying Orange Show!
Who is Allan and why is he still throwing oranges at me?
This show is Perfect...even with it's imperfections it is Perfect.
I didn't get on the bus till 75, so envision this as even crazier than i could imagine.

It was the Center of the Universe that night!!
I was a 14 year old long haired hippie boy.
I lived two blocks from the college and spent the day hanging out watching the crew set up the tie dye covered "wall of sound" in this small gym. New Riders played first. Jerry played all sets of both bands! During the last set of the Dead a security cop grabbed my shoulder as I was passing a joint to a stranger. My friend Phil yelled "Leave him alone Pig!" Distracting him enough for me to break loose and out the door. I missed the last several songs. It was a great time!

Definitely a good show.

Great songs in this line-up. Classic Sugar Magnolia equipment failure. I guess everything wasn't "just exactly perfect" before they started. The El Paso in this line-up is very slow and enjoyable. Great SBD quality.

The down side of '71
Not at the level of other shows from around this time. Try 4/21 or 14. The sound of the recording seems veiled. Pig to the rescue.

A bit slow to start off but by the time Pigpen gets going on Good Lovin' it all kicks in.Lots of great performances but that GDTRFB is absolutely amazing.

I was there
This was a small venue. NRPS opened up. Gerry and the boys were really on that night.
September 2, 2010 Subject:
my first show
This show was awesome. I split a little white pill in half then mistakenly slurped up both halves. I sat 10 feet in front of Jerry. The show was so intense that I never moved and had no feeling on the side of my left foot for 5 years.

I was there.
I remember it well. I was a senior in HS. Only heard a couple of Dead albums before that.
The one and only time I got to see Pigpen. They were still a five piece band then(Mickey Hart had left the band at that time}.
The New Riders of The Purple Sage opened the show
W/ Jerry Garcia on Pedal Steel.
The only bad part was some guy named Allen kept throwing oranges at me.

The GRATEFUL DEAD "Live On Stage" April 15, 1971 at Allegheny College, Meadville, PA, U.S.A.

Thirty eight years and eight days ago the GRATEFUL DEAD were performing at Allegheny College, in Meadville, Pennsylvania, I wish I was there.
I highly recommend adding this show to your 1971 GRATEFUL DEAD collection.

Solid, "In the Pocket" performances of all our favorite 71' songs.
Get all the April 71' shows, listen how they develop into "Ladies & Gentlemen The GRATEFUL DEAD" 4-25-29, shows from the Fillmore East, amazing!

this in not unknow
This show is a gem.For all of you 71 freaks..the NFA GDTRFB end mountin jam is Hair standing!Probably some of the best GD from this year!
This show was a blast and is captured beautifully here. A very intimate setting, and a crowd that was primed and gliding with the scene. I was there (as Lou Sleaves) with a group of friends, some from Virginia - Buckeyes, Dick (AKA Bones), Helmet Head, meableffutS, Cliff, Kiff, Madman, Carl. We brought a shopping bag full of oranges and threw them around in the crowd in that small, old gym. The Dead were very friendly and had a running conversation wih the crowd, not separated from them by more than a few feet. The atmosphere was bright, upbeat, trippy.
I've always had a soft spot in my heart for '71 Dead shows. Where did this show come from? I wasn't aware of it's existance until I stumbled across it here. What a nice surprise to find such a great sounding show and one that I've never heard before. Quality is excellent and the boys are smoking.

Where did this little nugget come from? It's not really listed in Deadbase or the Compendium, and I streamed it just because I'm trying to turn on a buddy who lived near there, and I'm blown away. Every tune is played beautifully, and Garcia just flat out shreds on a number of songs. the Bertha and Deal both feature those loud sharp solos that sound like he's holding a downed power line in his teeth. Puts the electric in electric guitar for sure. I for one am always a fan of obscure shows. This one is sweet. If you like 71 you should download it. It'll put a smile on your face.

This is a fantastic show and sound quality is superb. What a shame that 5 songs are missing! I would love to have the whole show!
August 11, 2004 Subject:
How many times can one say "wow" during playback? That's the question you'll be asking yourself. From the first song on this show doesn't disappoint. Great stuff to be sure. Everyone is in great form. Fantastic 1971 show. I'm very surprised I've never heard others mention this show.
